This semester, we have the opportunity to explore social media monitoring platforms Radian6 and Visible Technologies.

Please take some time to watch demos that explain what these platforms are and how they work.

Visible Technologies offers a very useful video introduction, followed by a tour of the platform’s key features. Please study them.

Radian6′ product introduction video explains what you can do with the platform. A more in-depth webinar walks you through the platform’s features.

Please familiarize yourself with these platforms and consider the option of using them to collect and analyze data for your final project. I will try to arrange for some sessions where you can ask questions about how they work, but this would require you have some baseline knowledge. I will let you know when test accounts are ready for you to experiment with.

If you’re broadly interested in social media analytics tools and companies, this post lists 10 more. There are very many out there, if you can find a complete list, please let me know.
